Is there some problem with the Post Your Own Game page? When I enter game information and press the 'Step 2' button I get nothing but a blank page with the text '$personid is CroydThoth' (my username) at the top.

For me this appears to work normally. But it might depend on what exactly you entered as data in the first step. Fergus would probably know straight away what the problem is. However, I happen to be working on an enhanced copy of the submission pages, and I put some additional diagnostic output in those that could be helpful for determining which path exactly you take through the script, and thus where it might run aground. So if you want you could try to submit through this page, and tell me what is printed in that case.

[Edit] I did discover a flaw in the submission2.php page: the <LABEL> tag for the format SELECT is not closed. This cannot cause the effect you describe, though. But it had the nasty consequence that any mouse click on the page would scroll it back to get the SELECT in view.
